It's about damn time to love the skin you're in.
At least, that's the passionate message Lizzo shared with her 27 million TikTok followers. On May 15, the "2 Be Loved" singer stitched a video from user @tiffriahgrande about her fitness journey—and her search for others not looking to "escape fatness."
Lizzo agreed, emphasizing that she was "heavy on the not trying to escape fatness."
"I just wanted to stitch this to show support to you because this creator, specifically, said, 'I'm looking for people that I can resonate with,'" the Grammy winner continued. "Very, very same."
For Lizzo, her job requires a lot of physical endurance, especially when she's performing a 90-minute set that includes dance choreography, playing the flute and belting out her songs in costumes that restrict her breathing.
"As I got more professional in my career," she pointed out, "I started to take the physical part more seriously. I've always loved moving my body, I've always loved working out. I think a lot of people see a fat person that way and immediately just assume everything they are doing is trying to be thin."
While Lizzo said she doesn't ever want to make that her goal, she explained that when she does work out, she notices a substantial difference in her mental health.
"Exercise has helped me shift my mind, not my body," she shared. "My body is going to change, everyone's bodies change. That's life."
Before signing off, she empowered fans to work on themselves from the inside out.
"Everything I eat, everything I do, every time I move my body, it's all for this," she said, pointing to her head. "If this ain't happy, none of this is happy."
